Who can resist this extraordinarily beautiful title? Not I. It's followed by an epigraph from Joseph Conrad that sets the tone: tough and honest. Kat Meads' new novel is written with earned authority, her sentences strikingly her own and strong, her characters memorable and involving, dialogue so good we hear it rather than read it, the summary effect one of grit and integrity. Meads is the distinguished author of many very fine books. This one is perfect: perfectly rendered, observed, and shattering. --Kelly Cherry, author of Twelve Women in a Country Called America
Kat Meads is a quiet-yet-provocative force of nature. --Gina Frangello, author of A Life in Men
With her latest installment in the continued exploration of Mawatuck County in the late 1960s and 1970s, Kat Meads cements her place in the pantheon of Great Southern Writers. With a spare, spot-on, laugh-out-loud funny, exacting style that draws the characters and their struggles (poverty, old wounds, religion's vestiges, alcoholism) into sharp relief, Meads captures the essence of a time and place as only a native daughter can. --Allison Amend, author of Enchanted Islands
Kat Meads's latest novel is as strong and savage as its title. The narrative and the dialogue compel the reader through the story, which combines humor with pathos to reveal sublime moments of personal insight against the repetitive thoughts and actions of the Mawatuck residents stuck in their everyday lives. --Donna A. Gessell, North Carolina Literary Review
